Hmm, nobody seems to recall that one very good reason for this feature has 
been already mentioned: Selecting larger icons might give you more detail, 
which is fine for most of us, but not from an accessibility point of view.

So, ideally the icon loader should support an option like "remove details" in 
addition to freely adjustable sizes, which would make it deliver icons of the 
requested size (so that all clients get the icon sizes they ask for) by 
scaling up smaller, less-detailed versions of that icon.

AFAICS, this brings some work and new UI strings into play.
